At approximately 10:00 a.m., Employee #1 walked back to his truck down the middle of the dirt road near the loading operation. He was backed over by a Ford L9000 dump truck, serial #290VVV76531, which was owned by R. C. Bellard, another truck owner/operator. Employee #1 was killed. The truck did not have an operable back-up alarm. Coworkers tried to get the attention of either Employee #1 or the backing truck driver by shouting or blowing vehicle horns.
